Summer Abroad: Shanghai and Beijing

This is the 12th year of the University of Toronto’s summer program in Shanghai, China. The program is designed to provide students from both the University of Toronto and Fudan University with a unique, intensive look at critical international issues from Western and Chinese perspectives. Students will spend two weeks in Shanghai attending intensive classes followed by 10 days in Beijing.

The program is hosted and co-taught by Fudan University. Founded in 1905, Fudan is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in China and has over 45,000 students. In the 1950s it also became one of the first institutions in China to enrol students from around the world, and has since trained over 10,000 students from 100 countries.

The University of Toronto will offer one course in Shanghai and Beijing, China. The course is worth one full-year U of T credit and is contingent on adequate enrolment. The class will be made up of students from both the University of Toronto and Fudan University.
